The Live Search team have just launched a cool competition in partnership with the Gnomedex conference where developers can win $10,000 and other cash prizes that have in impact on the economy or earth’s ecology.
The only caveat is that submitted applications must use Live Search APIs! You can create apps on whatever platform or language you prefer and you can also use any other APIs that you want from other service providers.
Why not take this opportunity to check out the other APIs provided by Live Services so you can build them in too! http://dev.live.com
IDEA: An app that incorporates search and Messenger would be pretty cool for sharing interesting search results with your friends.
